Brazil and Netherlands in XML tryst,
Petrilli digs to the Dublin Core,
Davis wants a quick fix,
and is there a Doc in the house?

Last week saw more progress on Jeffrey Shell's "Write Locking" project to support DAV-aware Web tools that require DAV locking support on the server.

HiperLogica and Martijn Pieters are moving the HiperDom project forward. Zopistas interested in this project to add XMLC-like templating to Zope should visit the new HiperDom development home now, while the requirements are being formalized, and "get their licks in",

Adam Davis has added a proposal for several "quick fixes" that we could make to the Zope management interface in the 2.3 release timeframe to "improve productivity",

Near Future

Expect a 2.2.3 release in the next week the contains fixes for all Hotfix bugs to date and a number of collector fixes. Work will also be proceeding on several of the items on the Zope 2.3 plan (which is available on dev.zope.org).

We will also be working on applying some better organization to dev.zope.org to make it easier to find what you are looking for and to get "at a glance" status for various projects and proposals.
